Tom Cleverley is not the first Manchester-based footballer to be targeted by burglars. Now Paris-Saint-Germain forward Angel Di Maria also had his home raided earlier this year when he was a Manchester United player.

Cleverley joined Everton from Old Trafford in the summer after a successful loan period at Aston Villa last season. The versatile midfielder is currently on the sidelines after suffering ligament damage during the Toffees league game against Tottenham Hotspur, being stretchered off in the first half.

The England international has not been married to wife Georgina long. The couple celebrated their wedding day this summer where several high profile names in attendance. Ex-Manchester United teammate Wayne Rooney and wife Coleen were there to congratulate the newly-weds.

A source close to the family has said the only thing on the couple's mind was protecting their two-year-old daughter. Despite not being physically hurt by the bat-wielding gang, Cleverley and his wife were left unsurprisingly "shaken" by the ordeal.
